Markham Neighborhood Features

Like many of the Southwest Portland neighborhoods, Markham is more suburban feeling than neighborhoods located closer into the city. Markham borders the Maricara Natural Area and several other nearby parks, making it a great place to live for those who like to hike and spend time outdoors while still being close to the city. Markham has easy access to I-5, and Downtown Portland is less than 15 minutes away.

Markham Neighborhood Parks

Marigold HydroPark

Portland has several HydroParks, and one of them is located within the Markham neighborhood. In short, a HydroPark is a Portland Water Bureau facility that’s been re-envisioned as a neighborhood greenspace. In the past, these facilities were fenced off and not accessible to the public. According to the city, removing the fences has increased security, as residents now visit and care for the spaces.

Marigold HydroPark is home to one of the Portland’s largest elevated tanks. It’s surrounded by some native plants for visitors to enjoy while they relax on benches and a picnic table provided by the City of Portland.
